This place serves resonably priced food and drink of good quality as an alternative to its more expensive neighbours, but it also has a nice small bar atmosphere and interesting decor.

Planned our in-season trip to Sanibel from Fort Myers Beach around peak traffic times and it worked out fine. Lazy Flamingo has some very good pub fare. New favorite is grilled grouper on Caesar salad. (Ask for half salad). Will be back.

We had a terrific dinner here while we were staying on beautiful Captiva Island. Although a mini-chain, it has a very local feel. The peel and eat shrimp are a must. We also enjoyed the raw oysters and grilled grouper. And the key lime pie is excellent.

Great food and good service! Had the fried grouper basket (recommended by a friend). Best I've ever had! Couldn't figure out who our server actually was.... actually, not a bad thing.... I think every server there checked on us, refilled drinks, brought dessert... not sure we ever saw the same person twice! But they apparently all cover each other and... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Laze Flamingo even though they don't provide table service. You can place your food order inside at the bar area and they call you to come get it when it is ready. The food was very good though!

Seafood was very fresh, blackened grouper sandwich was best I'd had in a long time. We've eaten here each time we were in Sanibel

Enjoyed a terrific blackened grouper sandwich & a beer. The grouper was flavorful. Has a tavern feel to it-which we enjoy

One bartender was crabby but the next one was fun and engaging. We only stopped for drinks. This location was apparently remodeled and is beautiful.
